Lots of stress leads to very little sex so try to find natural ways to reduce it, like yoga, meditation or a walk in the park with your dog.
So drop the excuses and your drawers! Here are 5 easy ways to increase your libido right now.
1. Bust out the erotica
Men and women are both visual creatures, but we're also turned on by words. That's why Fifty Shades of Grey was such a runaway success. To turn up the heat between your own sheets, either watch porn with your partner or read an erotic story, suggests licensed psychologist Dr. Samantha Rodman. And don't hold back! "The benefit of sharing is that it gives him a window into your fantasy life." Now, that's hot.
2. Hug him
3. Do some exercise
Lots of stress leads to very little sex so try to find natural ways to reduce it, like yoga, meditation or a walk in the park with your dog. "When we're stressed, our body diverts the hormones it would use to make sex hormones (progesterone and testosterone) in order to make stress hormones (cortisol especially) instead," says Schmid.
4. Ditch the sweets
Besides dark chocolate, of course! "Sugar affects our body negatively in so many different ways, but in relation to libido, it can increase our body's stress load and drain it of beneficial nutrients," describes Schmid. In turn, this affects our sex hormones and drive, according to brides.
